Minnetonka Swim Club Six Kick Switch Drill
Sunday's Swim Report - Synchronized Peeping Practice

Bunny Day Swimming Reset Workout

Ahhh...Sunday!  The last few Saturday's have been recovery days with no working out and then Sunday I'd swim a long workout.  So this weekend I took it easy yesterday and went right to bed after Doctor Who.  Even with a good night sleep I was a bit sleepy and groggy.  I headed to the pool hoping to wake up.

The workout - 

1x500 loosen

4x75 kick with fins on 1:30 - dolphin front, back, side on each one (300/800)

MB-PHRT Took a bit of a pee break before moving on...

4x50 on :50 -  pace (200/1000)

Main Set:

1x400 free on 6:00 - good pace (400)

1x200 IM on 3:20 (200/600)

1x300 free on 4:30 - good pace (300/900)

1x150 IM on 2:30 (150/1050)

1x200 free on 3:00 - good pace (200/1250)

1x100 IM on 1:40 (100/1350)

1x100 free on 1:30 - goodpace (100/1450)

4x50 - one of each on 1:00 (200/1650/2650)

I felt sooo sluggish during the set.  My pacing was 1:15 for the 300 and 400 and a 1:12 for the rest.  My strokes felt forced and stiff.  I just wasn't feeling it but forced myself to continue.  

3x100 pull on 1:40 - focus on ride and catch (300/2950)

I then did some driling and pulling for about another 600 waiting for everyone to start swimming and finish the warmup.  Everyone was a bit later then normal.  (600/3450)  We then all did a 200 kikc (200/3650)

Main Set:

6x150's It was drill/kick/swim/drill/rest so a 125 on an interval then a 25 sprint on another interval.  I don't remember the intervals.  I did them fly, back, breast, free, fly and the very last one just swam a full 150 for a warm down.  (900/4550)

I got out since I have lunch plans and wanted to eat a small breakfast and do some laundry so I'd have something to wear at lunch.  So a 4,550 yard swim today.  The gym is closed today so no gym time.  Doh!
